    Re: Taff rail logs
    From: Casey McMullen

    Cherub - http://www.maritime-antiques.co.uk/44.html
    KDO - Knotmeter Distance Only, plastic bodied (I have one of these)
    IIIA - speed and distance, plastic bodied (I believe)
    Excelsior - http://www.westsea.com/tsg3/catlocker/cat03chart.htm
    
    Besides construction and speed capability, the other thing to be aware
    of is whether it is an outrigger/bayonet mount that hooks into a bracket
    on the taffrail (usually one on each side), or if it's a sling type that
    hangs off something like a stern pulpit.
